"From the January 6th committee about the efforts to subvert democracy using false claims of fraud in the 2020 election. A new NPR investigation that's out today explores how election denialism has evolved into a sprawling nationwide movement. NPR voting correspondent miles parks is here to discuss the new findings, so what'd you find miles? So we found a real shift. For most of 2020, misinformation about elections was really headquartered in Donald Trump's Twitter account. But now, the baton is sort of been passed to this core group of what you might call election denial influencers. These are people who have spent the last 18 months building large following claiming things like they found formulas that show how the 2020 election was rigged and things like that. Of course, these sorts of claims have all been debunked many times by paper ballot. Hand counts by audits, even by former president Donald Trump's own attorney general Bill Barr. But still, these voter fraud evangelists have spent the last year and a half meeting with groups of concerned citizens. In backyards in hotel conference rooms in car dealerships, all across the country, spreading the gospel of voter fraud. So tell us about these people and where they've gone. They've really been everywhere. Our investigations team tracked them using social media data and local news reports to map this out. And we found a core group that appeared at more than 300 events across the country, traveling to almost every single state. Here's sound one of them Seth cashel. Now, I will say this. I went to 46 states in 2021. Most of them beginning in June with my telegram channel took off somebody named Donald J Trump, put me out a few times and then things changed in my life. NPR also tracked my pillow founder Mike lindell, as well as two other election denial influencers named Douglas Frank and David Clements. Now, this would be one thing if these were just events to just keep the lie alive that Donald Trump won the 2020 election, but they're not. These events often end with actionable items. Things like telling people to go knock on doors in their neighborhoods to find election fraud. An NPR editor attended one meeting with David Clements where he told the audience to go to the offices of their county commissioners. They respond to fear, he told them. Wow, respond to fear. Now, you also have found throughout their travels. They met with a number of lawmakers. Tell us about that. Yeah, so we found that over this time, these 18 months, they met or appeared with at least 78 lawmakers at the federal state and local level. Many of these people will have a role in how future elections are run and even certified. Some of these lawmakers were already sympathetic to these sorts of claims. But others were skeptical. It's clear that part of this strategy is to get an audience with people who decide how voting works. These people also met or appeared with more than a hundred candidates who are running for election at some level of government this year. It's worth noting a that this reporting really confirms what we've been seeing on the ground for the last two years. That this fervor about fraud in this portion of the right is not going away so we had in the midterms, you know, and as I talked to local election officials, they're really struggling with how to counter it. I talked to the Secretary of State of Michigan, for instance, who said that each time there's an election denial event in Michigan, her office receives an uptick in threats and harassment. That's NPR's miles parks. You can hear more on this investigation tonight on all things considered miles. Thanks a lot. Thank you.

Ann McElhinney Discusses Her New True Crime Podcast Project

"Welcome. I get to talk to somebody that I like. Her name is Ann, mcelhinney. Did I say it correctly and how close did I get? Oh my God, I love it. It's just unbelievable. All right, now you often I'm speaking to you along with your husband, the Irish by any chance. That would be right. And fail him is not with us today, but you represent him well. You've done so many things. People who listen to this program are familiar with you. You're a journalist. You made a film about Kermit gazelle, I don't even know. There's no way even to describe that. But we can talk about that. In just a moment, you're working on a film, or you've shot a film already about Hunter Biden, what is the title of that film? My son hunter, and that's coming out soon. More news on that quite soon. My son hunter, which is a film about Hunter Biden. Today, however, we're talking about another one of your projects, which is a true crime podcast. So if people are interested in finding it, it is called serial killer, a true crime podcast. And the serial killer, of course, is doctor Kermit gazelle, the Philadelphia abortion doctor convicted of many, many, many murders in 2013, it's horrifying. And talk about this. I'm not a big podcast listener. Some people listen to this program on podcasts, but what is serial killer a true crime podcast? Yeah, so the true crime genre in podcasts. As you say, you know, a lot of on the conservative side, we have a lot of podcasts that are like radio shows on demand. So people listen to your podcast to our podcast. And it's like radio on demand. However, there's this other huge territory in the podcast world of narrative dramatic sort of documentary style podcasts. And one of the biggest sections of that is true crime. So for example, NPR did a show called serial a narrative story about a boy who killed his girlfriend and Muslim boy who killed his girlfriend. 450 million people downloaded it. And it's very high production value is the interview people in prison. And we thought, you know something. We have all these tapes of interviews with Kermit goslaw of interviews with the detectives of interviewed victims. And it's pretty compelling

"On the next Brian lair show, the New York City council passed the law that granted voting rights to people who live in the city as legal immigrants, but who are not U.S. citizens. And now a court on Staten Island has struck it down, will examine the case. And on the final day of the Supreme Court term, we'll see what they decide on major cases involving climate regulation and asylum seekers at the southern border. The Brian Lara show at 10 a.m. on WNYC. It's morning edition from NPR news. I'm Rachel Martin in Washington, D.C.. And I'm a Martinez in Culver City, California. President Biden is wrapping up a week of high level meetings with allies in Europe. Russia has been the focus and the president says NATO and the G 7 have sent a unified message. But that message has been overshadowed here in the U.S. by other big news events. Before he leaves for home today, President Biden will face questions at a press conference. NPR White House correspondent Tamara Keith joins us now from Madrid Tam how's the trip gone for President Biden? Well, you know, he has had some success here at the NATO summit most notably turkey dropped its opposition to the application from Finland and Sweden to join the alliance. And The White House says that during this trip, President Biden played a big part in that, he called the Turkish president on Tuesday and talked about turkey's concerns about Finland and Sweden, and he said that this would be a great opportunity to resolve all of those issues so that the two presidents could sit down together and talk about other things at the NATO summit and then that is exactly what happened. The White House insists that there was no sweetener offered by President Biden, though we do know that turkey has been eager to buy U.S. fighter jets and the Defense Department is saying that it supports that. That is something that would have to work its way through the contracting process and Congress would need to sign off. But that is something I am sure President Biden will be asked about at the press conference today. Like were there really no sweeteners? Yeah, yeah. Now while he's been away focused on NATO and Ukraine, there's been a lot happening back home has that affected his trip at all. Yeah, I mean, he has mostly just kept his head down here and stayed focused on these summits. I have been struck by just how little we've heard from him other than occasional brief remarks at the start of a meeting. He hasn't given any major speeches or addresses. He's barely responded to shouted questions. And this trip started and will now end with big Supreme Court decisions first the Dobbs decision that overturned roe V wade. That happened the day before he left. It has dominated the news you know better than I do in the U.S. ever since. And there's been a lot of frustration from his supporters that he hasn't said more about it in the last week. And now we know that there are going to be big decisions on immigration and environmental regulations today as he heads home. There was also that January 6th hearing on Tuesday with stunning revelations that really overshadowed that news about Finland and Sweden clearing the hurdle to join NATO. You know, it's been a minute since President Biden's had a formal news conference. What do you expect? He'll be asked today. Yeah, the last major news conference that Biden held, I was actually there. It was in March. It was also at the end of a NATO summit. That one in Brussels. So it has been a long time. This will be the first time that Biden has faced questions that were shouted from a distance at least on what he plans to do now that abortion rights have been overturned. He did set up a commission some time ago to examine the Supreme Court, but he's never said whether he supports changes, like term limits. He might be asked about the economy. People's lives are really being affected by high gas prices and food prices. And some of that is being driven by big global forces. But there was not a lot of obvious or immediate progress on those issues in these meetings that Biden had this week, at least they didn't talk about it much publicly. A new poll yesterday from The Associated Press showed 85% of people say the country is on the wrong track. That includes nearly 8 in ten Democrats. So there is a lot of discontent ahead of the November elections. He could get asked about that and I expect he could even be asked if he still plans to run again in 2024. That's NPR's Tamara Keith in Madrid, tamra thanks a lot. You're welcome. As the war in Ukraine stretches into month 5, things are getting more precarious for other former Soviet republics. Lithuania decided to block some goods from getting into a Russian territory known as Kaliningrad, and now the Kremlin is threatening to retaliate. Lithuania, we should note as a member of NATO, so there is a lot of dangerous potential in all this. And pierce Charles maines is currently in Kaliningrad and he joins me now, hey Charles. Hi there, morning. So set this up for us by explaining more of this territory Kaliningrad and how it has become this source of tension right now. Sure. You know, Kaliningrad is a territory that was seized from Germany and became part of the Soviet Union along with the Baltic nations of Lithuania, Latvia, and Estonia at the end of World War II. Only amid the push for independence of those countries and break up with the USSR in 1991. Kaliningrad became something of an island. Today it's called an exclave that's a separate bit of Russian territory, sandwiched between Lithuania and Poland, which are both of course now European Union and NATO members. But these recent tensions with Kaliningrad, they really stem from Russia's military campaign in Ukraine and resulting western sanctions. The problem here is that Lithuania is also plying those sanctions to goods traveling from mainland Russia through its territory into Kaliningrad. The Kremlin says that's illegal. Okay, so lots of complications in all this. You're on the ground there. What have you been hearing from people? Yeah, you know, so far the ban only impacts select goods like steel, cement, furniture, and as a result there is an outsized impact on select industries, like construction, shipping, and that's the point that was made to be made to me by Jakob grigorev, who works in logistics here. So here gregorio says the ban means it costs more to transport goods and it takes longer because the only choice to send everything from Russia across the Baltic Sea now. Meanwhile, others I talked to say, look, we want good relations with our neighbors, but this is an unfriendly act against Kaliningrad in particular. And some longtime residents like Alexander sokolov have theories why. So sokolov here says that Friends in Lithuania tell him their media portray Russia as about to attack their country and he says that couldn't be further from the truth. But by building conflict with Russia, he argues the authorities in Lithuania can attract additional money and support from the EU and NATO. So what is Russia going to do? Well, the Kremlin is issuing not so vague threats against Lithuania, local officials here have a more nuanced take. They say yes, Lithuania's actions are an inconvenience, but they can work around them by expanding overseas shipping with more boats Okay, so if we take a step back here, what does this move by Lithuania, meaning the bigger picture when we think about the Russian aggression into Ukraine and any potential threats into the Baltic states in Europe? On the one hand, it looks like it's an isolated instant, right? Lithuanian officials say look most goods, at least for now, can still pass through Kaliningrad as they always have. They're just enforcing you sanctions policy, less clear is whether the EU entirely agrees amid these tensions, the EU is now suggesting they create a carve out for goods going to clinic grad. Meanwhile, Lithuania says it suddenly facing cyberattacks and bomb threats. We've also seen Russia carrying out drills among its Baltic Sea fleet and until this issue of transit goods to Kaliningrad is resolved. The problem is just another among many that could trigger an unintended conflict between NATO and Russia. And Paris Charles maines in Kaliningrad, thank you so much. Thank you

NPR's Rage Over Laws That Stop Individuals From Infiltrating Elections

NPR's Rage Over Laws That Stop Individuals From Infiltrating Elections

"Here's an interesting headline in NPR, private funding saved a 2020 election. Now some GOP led states are banning it. This article by miles parks, raises the immediate question. How can private funding save an election? You have an election. Elections, by the way, is supposed to be run by, I shouldn't just say the government, but by the states themselves. Using state money. They're not supposed to be vulnerable to private funding for the simple reason that private funding comes with private leverage and private leverage can lead to control manipulation, even the takeover of an election process. Now the point here is that NPR knows that this is in fact kind of what happened, at least in certain key places, like Wisconsin, in the 2020 election. It was so brazen. It was so outrageous that no one even thought to pass laws against it. And so Mark Zuckerberg and his wife Priscilla Chan put in almost half a $1 billion. Other people put in money as well, and then using front groups, these so called nonprofits. They were able to go to election offices and essentially say, listen, we'll give you money, but on the condition that you let our people in to help run things. Wow. So talk about manipulation of an election by private individuals using the pocketbook. I mean, here are the left rails about campaign finally campaign finance laws, big money has too big a role in the election. Dinesh, you gave $20,000 over the campaign finance limit. It's a real pity you aren't locked up for two full years for that. Your contaminating democracy, but somehow, here it comes to Mark Zuckerberg when I'm talking about $20,000 when I'm talking about $200,000, we're talking about $400 million.

A Full Defense of '2000 Mules' With Dinesh D'Souza

"Is taking the world by storm. The number 2000 mules dot com into the dinesh d'souza film research done by true the vote. We just had an unbelievable event. With dinesh here in Phoenix, Arizona. It was like 2000 people for 2000 mules, and with us right now to kind of give an update on how the film is doing. And also kind of go through some of these ridiculous fact checks that have emerged is the great dinesh d'souza dinesh welcome back to the program. Charlie always a pleasure and was really fun to be in Arizona and I mean the level of energy. People were really fired up and they want to they want to see some real change come out of this. They want the movie to be the propeller, but only the first step of a lot of things that have to happen next. Well, you've been doing a great job and we're starting to see, I think, a change in how the media is covering this. You're starting to see kind of a validation almost, where they are covering it now in The Washington Post and The Daily Beast. Albeit they're doing it sloppily dishonestly and in a way to try to delegitimize the film. But I think it does the opposite. I think it actually further platforms the movie. Let's just talk more broadly than we can get into specifics. What's your reaction on how this movie is being covered by the mainstream media? Well, it seems to me that they went and do phases. And the first phase, they unleashed some fact checkers, PolitiFact Ali swensen, AP, a couple of other articles, and they tried to be dismissive. Like geo tracking doesn't really work and those kinds of things, which were kind of manifestly absurd. And I think even the left realized that's really not going to do the job. So now they've unleashed their bigger guns, Philip bump of The Washington Post. That's a big New York Times article that seemingly underway hasn't come out yet. And NPR tried to sort of get us on the issue of an ancillary murder that's discussed in the movie as if to say, you know, we lied about it. So there's sort of the second wave of liberal attack, much more detailed, tries to be more sophisticated. But I think it's not, it's really not landing a real glove on the movie either.

Dinesh Continues His Dissection of NPR's '2000 Mules' Critique

"I'm continuing my discussion or perhaps dissection is the right word of Tom rice box article in NPR. A pro Trump film suggests it's data so accurate it solved a murder. That's false. Before I go on, I want to point out, look at how desperate these guys are, right? This quote solving of a murder. We didn't say we solved the murder, but nevertheless, is totally peripheral to election fraud. It's only used to show that the same geo tracking techniques that could be useful in solving a murder or helping to solve a murder are the same techniques applied to ballot trafficking. But NPR is so eager. I mean, they have so little to attack in the movie, they're like, let's take this case, which is unrelated to ballot trafficking, the Sequoia Turner case, and let us see if we can take it apart and it's granular detail. And so they sat with a certain kind of ahab like determination to try to do that and the effect is, well, let's just see what it is. Now, this is how this is the kind of false sleuth posture that reporter drives back likes to strike up. So he goes, in the episode of the podcast promoting the film, d'souza said Phillips and engelbrecht provided their analysis to the FBI, which turned the data over to the Georgia bureau of investigation, the GBI. Now, NPR contacted the GBI to fact check this claim. Great. Let's see what happens. Quote. The JBA did not receive information from true the vote that connected to the Sequoia Turner investigation said Nellie miles the GBI director of the office of public and governmental affairs. Wait, Tom drives back himself, wrote three sentences earlier that the information was not given to the GBI, but was given to the FBI. And the FBI turned over the information not necessarily with any attribution to true the vote, the FBI is going to look at the data itself. The FBI turns the data over to the GBI. So when the GBI says we didn't get information from truth to vote, true, nobody gave the GBI information directly. The information was given as noted above to the FBI. And then to get even more ridiculous, the writer, Tom dry spot goes quote, an attorney for Sakura Turner's family told NPR they had never heard of the angle bricks and Phillips analysis either. What? What would the family of the victims have to do with any of this? What would they how would they have knowledge of where this information came from? Let's say I go and give information to the FBI, which then gives it to the GBI. Why would I expect that the turnover family would be on the inside of this as the FBI and the GBI regularly sit down with victims families, by the way, we got some tips from here. Let's show you the data. You can no they don't do any of

"But what is serial killer a true crime podcast? Yeah, so the true crime genre in podcasts. As you say, you know, a lot of on the conservative side, we have a lot of podcasts that are like radio shows on demand. So people listen to your podcast to our podcast. And it's like radio on demand. However, there's this other huge territory in the podcast world of narrative dramatic sort of documentary style podcasts. And one of the biggest sections of that is true crime. So for example, NPR did a show called serial a narrative story about a boy who killed his girlfriend and Muslim boy who killed his girlfriend. 450 million people downloaded it. And it's very high production value is the interview people in prison. And we thought, you know something. We have all these tapes of interviews with Kermit goslaw of interviews with the detectives of interviewed victims. And it's pretty compelling stuff. And we're also still in touch with Kermit Gosling, and we have interviewed him for hundreds of hours since he went to prison. And we're thinking, this is actually a really compelling story that people who listen to true crime and like true crime would find fascinating. The guy was found by accident. Jim wood a detective who was undercover was doing a drug, a routine drug deal, routine drug investigation, discovered this Doctor Who was one of the biggest opioid sellers in the whole of Pennsylvania. And then they do a raid on the clinic. They walk in and they get this smell of death and they're like, there's something else going on here. And it's a brilliant, it's an incredible story, and we tell it over 6 episodes with the main players telling their part of the sky away. I want to be clear because I know there are many new listeners to this program or to my podcast. They're not familiar because they haven't heard my conversations with you on the film that you made. But this is one of the stories of our time. It's one of the most gruesome and important stories of our time because there are many gruesome stories, but this story is extremely gruesome, but also extremely important because it highlights so many things at the heart of our broken culture. And so for people who know nothing about Kermit gazelle, let's talk about that. My understanding, the surface level is that this was a man who was operating one of the most, I mean, folks, this is like out of a novel, it's too horrific to imagine, but this is in a poor section of Philadelphia, praying on poor black women almost exclusively, and this is one of the most filthy evil abortion clinics you could ever imagine. It's like out of Dickens. Utterly horrifying. And this was going on year after year after year and the authorities did nothing. So that's one piece of the story, but Ann talk more, please for my audience who doesn't know what happened. No, but that's a great introduction, by the way. This guy was operating in plain sight. I mean, that's an incredibly important part of this piece. This guy operated for 30 years in plain sight. He did do legal abortions in a filthy, filthy, dirty place. However, he had a modus operandi of delivering bigger babies alive and then cutting the necks with scissors, and he did this according to the grand jury thousands of times. Which makes him okay, but let's just go back for a second. Because I've never really understood this, I don't think. He was known that if you basically are 8 months pregnant, 9 months pregnant. You can go to Kermit gosnell and he will kill the baby. He a 100%. He did this. This was his effectively his specialty. If you really were stuck, he would do anything, including murder live children, deliver them, and then kill them. Hard for us to even talk about this, but this is a reality. This was going on year after year after year after year in a quote unquote legal abortion facility operated by this monster, the serial killer. How did you come to.

Dinesh Refutes NPR's Critique of '2000 Mules'

"Let's kind of go through this rather slowly because I think we need to in order to see this operation and dissect it. I'm going to dissect it almost like I'm in biology class and this is a frog. It's called investigation. So right there it's telling you, this is serious business. We're in really investigation. A pro Trump film now stop right there. A pro Trump film. Anyone who has seen 2000 meals knows that 2000 mules is not about Trump. How much time does Trump get in the film? I would say maybe one minute, maybe two, out of 90 minutes. This is different by the way than the film rigged. Dave bosse's film had a lengthy interview with Trump that was running all the way through the film. This is not like that. This is a film about stealing an election. Now, Trump was the candidate in 2020, obviously I'm going to mention Trump. I obviously also mentioned Biden, but I was very careful not to make this a film that was sort of about Trump and Trump is just quoted three or four times a single line in the film. And then, of course, that's footage from election night. So just that part of the headline is aimed at saying this film was made for Trump. It's a pro Trump film. We've got a discounted right away. All right, the pro Trump film suggests its data are so accurate. It solved the murder. That's false. First of all, I'm going to say straight out and I'm going to ask you to watch the film so you can make up your own mind. I do not say in this film the true the vote, quote, solved, a murder. In fact, I can prove it. I'm going to go to the exact statement that appears in the film. In fact, it's quoted in the article. This is what I mean when I say that they make a claim in the headline that is subtly undermined by the text of the article, but nowhere does the writer give you any clue about this. He allows you to get the false reading. In fact, it's part of his purpose that you get the follow false

The Left's A-Team Fact Checkers Emerge to Dissect '2000 Mules'

"Left is really getting desperate on 2000 mules. They started out by unleashing their fact checkers. And these are 20 and 30 somethings, and they thought, okay, yeah, we'll shut this down, you know, but of course these are people who know nothing about geo tracking. Geo tracking is not very reliable. And they don't know much about election law. And so they had these clumsy first salvos that were easily repelled. In fact, even people who had nothing to do with politics would say things like, wait a minute I lost my cell phone in some tall grass and I was able to pinpoint its exact location within inches. So this idea that you can't, all this technology doesn't work, it's like laughably absurd. And so suddenly the left realized, oh my gosh, you know, we've obviously deployed our B team and that's not gonna be enough. We need to unleash the a team. So the a team is now coming out. The a team is The New York Times, which is evidently trying to do some sort of a hip job. They haven't published it yet. Whoop Dee do. I mentioned The Washington Post, which I'll be discussing in depth tomorrow, a Philip bump in The Washington Post. There's an article in NPR, which I'll be dealing with. Tomorrow probably. But I want to talk about an article in the Atlanta journal constitution, which is focusing on Georgia. And I want to use it as a case study of just classic deception at all levels. Title of the article. Georgia investigation dispels allegations highlighted in 2000 mules. Let's just take in the title for a minute. You think you're going to get some kind of refutation of the allegation in 2000 meals that 242 mules. Have been identified through cell phone geo tracking, visiting ten or more drop boxes each and a bunch of these people are seen on video. Not all of them, but a bunch of them where the video is available. Now, the subtitle of the article ballots were legally delivered for family members. Okay? And then I started reading the article. The article it turns out is about one guy. And I'm going to read surveillance video showed a man pull up in a white SUV and insert 5 absentee ballots into a gwinnett county Dropbox.

The Larger Significance of the NPR-Sotomayor Story

"I'd like to talk about the larger significance of this NPR story about the Supreme Court and masking. I wasn't going to cover the story. I thought it was kind of dumb. But Debbie's like, no, people are talking about it. You should cover it, and I want to do it in a way that draws out. What's really going on here? Because you see the essence of fake news. And it started out with Nina totenberg, the kind of longtime court reporter of NPR. Saying the following, she said that according to sources at the court Sotomayor did not feel safe in proximity to people who were not masked. Nina told mug reported that justice Roberts, understanding that, quote, in some form as the other justices to mask up. And then says tort, they all did, except Gorsuch, who as it happens sits next to Sotomayor on the bench, is continued refusal to do so has meant that Sotomayor has not attended the justice weekly conference in person, joining by telephone. Now, this article was just picked up because it suggested this kind of, wow, even at the Supreme Court, you've got all this insider Garfield going on over masking. So right away, CNBC was all over at MSNBC, CNN, and then of course all the pundits began to weigh in. He has made a Hassan. Why is it that the public figures on the right who claim to be pious Christians and believers and morality and decency turn out to be awful awful people? So you got the statement and then all the speculations on top of the statement presuming, of course, the statement to be true. And then justice Roberts put out a statement basically saying I never asked the other justices to be masked, boom. And after that, this was even more unprecedented. There was a statement that came out from Sotomayor and Gorsuch. So what are my says? I never asked that gore such be masked. I never, I never made that requirement. Gorsuch said I never heard anything of this sort from the chief justice has never been any such rule. The whole story was made up. The whole story was lies. Now, the killer. Here's a Nina totenberg tweeting after all this after three statements think of the how unusual it is for three justices of the court to come out and directly dispute all of them, saying the same thing and say meeting Nina totenberg's reporting as follows. You think she'd be like eating crow, right? No. Quote, NPR stands by my reporting. In other words, the three justices are liars. Either that, or some analysts have tried to cover her by saying that in an original report, she said that the judge Roberts quote in some form as the justice system makeup as though in some form means he didn't really.

Sotomayor, according to the report, has asked Gorsuch to put his mask on as the Supreme Court is in session. He is reportedly refusing forcing the. Immunocompromised Sonia Sotomayor to work from home. That's according to NPR. Turns out, they're all denied. All of the parties involved said it's absolutely false. It's a blatant lie.
